Legend for badges:

The NomadPrep course encourages four fundamental behaviors in its students:

  1. Learn: put in the time to go through each lesson, do the research, ace the quizzes and absorb the information taught.
  2. Prepare: do the work to prepare (namely, complete each homework assignment IRL).
  3. Contribute: participate in the forums. Ask questions and help answer questions of others where you can contribute.
  4. Commit: take definitive baby-steps each day towards putting progressively more skin in the game and ultimately making the leap to go.

The course employs gamification towards promoting these behaviors via rewarding consistency of attendance, quiz scoring, completion of key steps, participation in the forums and other activities. Below are your current achievements, your current rank, a list of all possible attainable achievements and how you can win each (hover over each to see explanation). Your current standings relative to other students taking the course are at the top of the page.
